"From USA Today and internationally bestselling author Leonard Goldberg comes a new thrilling tale of Sherlock Holmes' daughter and her companion Dr. John Watson, Jr. as they investigate a murder at the highest levels of British society. 1910. Joanna Blalock's keen mind and incredible insight lead her to become a highly-skilled nurse, one of the few professions that allow her to use her finely-tuned brain. But when she and her ten-year-old son witness a man fall to his death, apparently by suicide, they are visited by the elderly Dr. John Watson and his charming, handsome son, Dr. John Watson Jr. Impressed by her forensic and deductive skills, they invite her to become the third member of their deductive team. Caught up in a Holmesian mystery that spans from hidden treasure to the Second Afghan War of 1878-1880, Joanna and her companions must devise an ingenious plan to catch a murderer in the act while dodging familiar culprits, Scotland Yard, and members of the British aristocracy. Unbeknownst to her, Joanna harbors a mystery of her own. The product of a one-time assignation between the now dead Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, the only woman to ever outwit the famous detective, Joanna has unwittingly inherited her parents' deductive genius. The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes is full of excitement and intrigue, sure to be enjoyed by fans of Sherlock Holmes as well as the works of Laurie R. King and Charles Finch"--… (lisätietoja)

I read this to get an introduction to the series after winning book #5, The Abduction of Pretty Penny, in a goodreads giveaway. What I got was that plus a light, cozy-ish mystery that pulled in elements from the original Sherlock Holmes cases and added a new twist to the Holmes-Watson partnership. This went a step further than just introducing a female detective into a Holmes styled mystery but I don’t think Laurie R. King (Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes) has anything to worry about. I hope now that the groundwork’s laid the rest of the series will continue to develop the characters and put a little more focus on the mysteries themselves. ( )

The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes (2017) by Leonard Goldberg. I tried not to like this novel. I despaired when Dr. Watson introduced us to his son, Dr. John Watson. Fine I thought, father and son off on an adventure, but of course, because of the title, there had to be Holme’s daughter involved.
Still fine with me. The son and the daughter set up in business as crime fighters mirroring their famous fathers. And then a crime was introduced, a “suicide” that had have been murder and easily seen by any investigator worth his or her salt as such.
Enter Lestrade, Inspector from Scotland Yard, and you guessed it, son of the other Lestrade of earlier tales. And the “suicide” happened in the home of Dr. Moran, Christopher the son not the father, Sebastian.
I thought that this was just being lazy on the part of the author. Each child is an echo of their parent, set in the ways of the past and so not original at all. Still there was the plot to think of, but don’t think too much about it as the thing is used only to set the stage for possible other tales. The why of the murder plot seems rehashed from another of the A.C. Doyle novels, but I could be wrong.
By the time the daughter of a famous hound was introduced I was in total despair. Time and again I set the book aside and read something I felt was better. In the end I did manage to force myself through and finish the thing.
It was O.K. Not great or terrible but laying somewhere in the great morass of being a nice little plop about London looking for proof of a murder and a hastily cribbed “Non-copy” of a Holmes tale.
I’d say you could easily find a more productive Holmes read by contacting Breese Books of London and seeing what they might have to offer. I’ve picked up more than one “other” Holmes tales there. ( )

Simple and somewhat sweet, but not particularly gripping. I did like the main characters quite a bit. ( )

As the title proclaims, one of the main characters is a woman who is the result of a cocaine-fueled one-night stand between Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, both now long dead. (Do YOU buy that? Yeah, me neither.) She has inherited brains and beauty from her esteemed parents (her mother having placed her for adoption before birth with Dr. Watson's assistance). She has Sherlock's uncanny capacity for deduction, but as presented in this story, it's not so much that she is brilliant, as that everyone around her (the original Dr. Watson, his son John, and several other descendants of the original set of characters) is remarkably dim. Every observation she makes is laid out in obvious fashion for the reader, who easily gets there well before she has to explain it to her colleagues; there is endless astonishment at her skills from everyone except the current Inspector Lestrade, who seems a bit sharper than the rest of the tacks in the box. She leads the Watsons, Lestrade, and a terrier named Toby Two (oh, yes, even the dog is descended from one created by Conan Doyle) around by the nose, as it were, until two murders and one attempt have been solved and/or foiled. The writing is uneven, the dialog wretched; it seemed the author couldn't quite decide what decade...or century...his characters ought to settle in. There's a bit of fatuous romance thrown in as well. If this was meant as an homage to Conan Doyle, the good doctor should feel insulted. If you've read any of the original work, you will want to steer well clear of this ....not to put too fine a point upon it....rip-off. There are so many better attempts to carry on that legacy. ( )

This story takes place in 1914. Dr. Watson is living at 221B Baker Street but Holmes has passed away. When a young woman comes to Watson to ask him to look into the apparent suicide of her brother, Watson calls on his son John Watson Jr. to act as his assistant.

They are quickly joined in their investigation by one of the witnesses to the death. Mrs. Joanna Blalock and her young son were walking by the site. Watson knows Mrs. Blalock and confides to his son that she is the daughter of Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler who was put up for adoption at birth. Her mother didn't long survive the birth and Holmes knew he wouldn't make a good father. Watson believes that she doesn't know about her parentage. He only tells his son because there is a trust for Mrs. Blalock that John will administer after his father's death.

Joanna grew up, became a nurse, married, had a child and was widowed. She always had a powerful intellect and great powers of observation. She read widely including works by Holmes about being an investigator. Her son Johnny is the very image of Sherlock as a young boy and looks to be his equal in intelligence and observation.

Together the three investigate and learn that the first victim was to be followed by two more victims leaving the murderer in sole possession of a treasure stolen during the Second Afghan War and kept secret for these many years.

I liked the action in the story and the shadow of the original Sherlock Holmes' stories that are glimpsed in this one. I thought the characters were a trifle one-sided with Watson being primarily a cheerleader praising Joanna for her marvelous deductions and Joanna herself being primarily noted for her intelligence. The younger Doctor Watson did have a good part to play but I found his immediate attraction to Joanna to be a little unbelievable.

The story was told by the younger Doctor Watson and narrated by Steve West who had a quite convincing British accent. I was amused by the various pronunciations of some words that are so different than American English. ( )
